Kiana Lee

Kiana Lee fine and commercial artist/textile designer

ABOUT KIANA Kiana is an artist/designer born in Hawaii, raised in Southern California, then started her own family in the beautiful Pacific Northwest She is a lifelong, self taught and mentored artist, and studied as a Graphic design major at OSU.   Visual art, performance art, and music has always been an integral part of her life and upbringing, as the daughter of late artist Daniel Keiser, and niece of the late Randy California of the 60's rock band SPIRIT (just to name a couple) After a major catharsis in 2008, she fully dedicated herself to cultivating a career in the arts. Her life experience, paired with an unquenchable thirst for creativity and experimentation, truly allows her to work within many style genres and with varying mediums.   Artist statement:   Inspiration truly comes from everywhere, and my current work reflects inspiration and affinity for nature and how the abstract color field and expressionist styles apply to the subject matter. I truly became fond of watercolors after experimenting with it as I would in "staining" styles of work with oil and acrylic - the fluidity, the unforgiving and yet beautiful accidents that seemed to occur when working with it... I begin each piece, sometimes with certain intention - yet allowing the paint the freedom to take on life of its own, organic and unrestrained even from the confines of my brush or fingers...     Coming from a musical family, I most often paint with music, because my emotional response to auditory sounds also plays a major role in the process of the work... Although I paint within various mediums, style and subject matter, I tend to gravitate toward growth and creation, positive, and uplifting artists and works. My process varies on medium, but love to use unexpected tools for expression, Such as my love for Minimalist compositions, Sumi Brushes and watercolor!    Kiana's unique interpretation of the watercolor garden-scape, and abstract pieces garnered the attention of galleries and influential curators in the online art world and maker-movement proponents, first with with multiple features in THE JEALOUS CURATOR by Danielle Krysa, JUSTINA BLAKENEY, The Artsy Forager, and with Art and Design magazines and bloggers like ELLE DECOR, Whitney Port.com, ANTHOLOGY Magazine, ORION magazine; January 2015 Cover,  The Foundry Hawaii, The Artsy Forager, Country Living Magazine, DOMINO Magazine, Better Homes and Gardens, TORY BURCH Daily, etc...   She works within many aspects of the art and design world, as a fine artist, textile and surface designer, and Illustrator, for health, beauty and fashion, and fine art clients.   Collaborations are an important and integral part of her artistic M.O.   She has partnered with Big Brands, and Galleries alike, and can find her work in-store and on sites such as: Target, West Elm, IKEA, Anthropologie, Bed Bath and Beyond, Pottery Barn, GREENROOM Hawaii, Artfully Walls, GREAT.LY, Lulu and Georgia, Paiko Hawaii, One Kings Lane, MINTED.com, Domino.com, Ugallery, COLLECTOR San Fransico, Saatchi Art, Scoutmob, etc...   She has her own small online boutique on her website including a large number of licensed works

This isn’t Cheesecake.
(Obviously)
It is a Gateau de Manioc ~aka~ Haitian style Cassava cake.
And it is now my spouse.
👰🏻🍰💕🤣

So you already know how bout it I am when it comes to experimentation and my affinity for the WORLD of food... but I’m telling you, with every Haitian recipe I attempt, I just fall deeper and deeper... My heart is no longer my own.
Sigh...

So the crust is a semolina and yogurt Basbousa cake, drenched in a rose and lemon syrup, and the cake base is where the Umm Ali flavors come into play, with cinnamon and sweet cream, a coconut cream glaze on top and covered in more rose syrup and pistachios ✨🙏🏼🥳🍰✨ .

Kama is the enjoyment of appropriate objects by the five senses of hearing, feeling, seeing, tasting and smelling, assisted by the mind together with the soul.
The ingredient in this is a peculiar contact between the organ of sense and its object, and the consciousness of pleasure which arises from that contact is called Kama.

M. Vatsyayana, Kama Sutra 🙏🏼🍰✨ Please allow me to address your senses... Mango Kulfi inspired NY Cheesecake: sweet condensed milk, Kesar mango and cardamom, set on a butter cookie crust with a hint of saffron and then drenched in Kesar Mango purée and almonds .

Sometimes it’s good to reflect on the past... it sounds counterintuitive but it’s not, because you can’t suppress human emotion like sadness or pain, you must acknowledge it in order to be able to let it go. And it takes time to get there too. But,
Today it put me in a complete mental state of gratitude and excitement for the woman/artist I am becoming - through it all... and a reminder of the the incredible passion and love that flows from and through me, but sometimes I have shut that person down out of fear of being hurt or whatever.
It’s all learning and growing
Sigh...
Welp.
To all of it, thank you. And...
I love you.

You've got this life and while you've got it, you'd better kiss like you only have one moment, try to hold someone's hand like you will never get another chance to, look into people's eyes like they're the last you'll ever see, watch someone sleeping like there's no time left, jump if you feel like jumping, run if you feel like running, play music in your head when there is none, and eat cake like it's the only one left in the world!

“True love is not a strong, fiery, impetuous passion. It is, on the contrary, an element calm and deep. It looks beyond mere externals, and is attracted by qualities alone. It is wise and discriminating, and its devotion is real and abiding.” – E.G. White
